Tea and "The 4-Hour Work Week"

So... I'm taking half the day to just slow down and not think about work. My life has been so busy the past few months. Busy is good but I do wish I was more busy doing things that excited me. I've been reading this book called, The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss. I'm probably only a quarter-way through the book, and I'm hooked. I highly recommend this to anyone who may be in a situation where they feel they need more time to do what they enjoy. Its just changing my whole thought process about complying to "rules". Very interesting.

Anyway, I wanted to give an update on my passion for beneficial, herbal tea blends. Sounds kind of random, I know lol, but I'm just gonna keep going with my thought .... For most of the month of Novemeber, I was in China working on our Q3 development. For some reason, while I was out there, the topic of "tea" came up A LOT. I always drink green tea (almost everyday) while I'm in the office in NY. But in China, we have it with just about every meal. Its cool because green tea is so healthy for you. This trip, I think I tried 3 more different kinds of tea. My favorite was this Indonesian tea we had on my bday. It was sweetened (with idk what), but chinese tea is rarely served that way. Iced Oolong tea is bangin too. I even saw them mix it with the drinks in the club haha. 

I'm learning a lot and I think the knowledge can come in handy soon. Today, I decided to blend together some loose green tea I brought back from China, with a spicy chai blend (already in a bag) + honey for sweetness. It came out really good. It smelled like a cozy day too lol. Just don't let the spicy chai steep for too long. It makes the tea too bold.

Remember my post about "Making herbal tea with the girlies "? Last night, I ordered 10 more bags of herbs. When they come in, I'm going to try to make a healthy herbal tonic. Def excited. I'll keep you posted :)
